built around a growing, thriving middle class, not the top-down theory that gov. romney has. >> but when you talk to top democrats, they know the president has to be careful and not necessarily be too aggressive like we saw vice president biden on thursday night because it will be a town hall format with undecided voters. it could backfire if you are too negative. there's a balancing act. meanwhile on the republican side, las you see is gov. romney has been surging in key battle ground, he was in ohio yesterday with rob portman, campaigning there. and pressroom had nor debate prep yesterday morning before holding several rallies throughout the state of ohio. one of his top advisors, ed gillespie said the president can get more aggressive, he can change his style, but he can't change his record. take a look. >> the president can change his style, he can change his tactics but he can't change his record, he can't change his polls. the fact the drop in household income has occurred under his watch we have a stagnate economy. >> so here we are with essentially a 50-50 race, pretty close

in. >> governor romney talked about the issue in his debate with president obama. conservatives and liberals are calling for a move to moral economy. for republicans cutting spend democrats it is asking the rich to pay more. governor mike huckabee joins us live . great to have you here. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, uma. >> i know it is an important issue. why do you feel morality and the economy are linked . >> some people call it generational theft and that is accurate description and if you steal from somebody that is a moral issue. that's what we are doing. we are stealing from the generation that is coming after us. we are spending money they will have to pay back on our behalf . we get the benefit and they get the burden. that is immoral and wrong to do that and that is what the huge 16 trillion debt represents. >> are you concerned about the current state of affairs is accepted by some as the new norpal? >> i am uma . let me be fair. this is not just something democrats created but republicans have done. republicans boast they don't raise taxes. that may be wonderfu

. we have talked about this a lot. look at this. romney, ahead now in florida, north carolina, ohio and virginia. >> not ohio. >> ohio is down by one. >> he was so far behind. >> what we are seeing, in florida, which is a republican-leaning state if the race is tied, governor romney has a slight advantage. north carolina, he should win, as well. ohio is the key. all the swing states, including virginia, can go to governor romney but unless he wins ohio, he cannot win the election. ohio is now close to deadlocked. >>gregg: governor romney was down double digit. >> he was down in ohio, certainly. i don't know about double digits. notice news organization which spent all the money doing the state polls, we have not had one poll since the debate talking about the effect, favorability and other things. i will say this: one of the things that has happened, the race has the disconnect -- romney should you'd this, the $200 million or more spent making him into an eager and the president never made the charges. i would be out there torpedoing obama's add very advertising, why won't he say it him

on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the

governor mark sanfd to talk strategy about the next debate. what do you think governor romney did well the last time around that convinced so many folks that were maybe undecided at least from what the polling shows us initially that he's their man? >> well, i think he was assertive, and a lot of folks had wondered would he ever step out and really challenge obama? i think that was one of the real frustrations with conservatives across the country. i think he needs to continue that. you know, obviously obama will come out in this case much more forcefully and he will throw a lot of spears. i think it's very, very important that in this case, you know, romney stays focused on his vision for the country and stays focused on the things that ultimately matter the most to people in the country which is where is the economy going, where are we with jobs, and what's happening next on the debt and deficit issue. >> we got mixed signals from the obama campaign that the president intends to be more aggressive this time around. we know it's a town hall format where the candidate will be taking questi

the next 30 days. >> status quo. mitt romney, no question, that debate was a game changer, but jamie, a debate doesn't win an election, it sets the tone. he has to keep performing, keep talking about what he will do to create a better america and are you better off than you were four years ago. and we have all of these poll numbers dealing with swing states, but the polls that count, would you go to the poll and vote and i believe that people are going to vote their wallets, not going to vote their conscience, not their culture, are you better off and do you have a job. >> jamie: given the economy is such a key issue, doug, i want to look forward to the first vice-presidential debate. without a doubt, paul ryan is a numbers guy and democrats have not even gotten a budget passed. not to mention the fact that vice-president biden is seen as making gaffe after gaffe when it comes to whether or not the last four years have been crushing for the middle class, he's had to backtrack on a couple of statements, i can't go through them all we don't have time. >> we don't have time right

recover faster. >> i guess, you are right that mitt romney had a plan that he is talking about. but the problem is that he is saying stuff that he is not backing up. >> he has a five-point plan -- >> excuse me. i did not interrupt you. do not interrupt me. the five-point plan has no substance, no basis. it has nothing to back it up. i being have a five-point plan i. that's not true -- >> how's mitt romney -- >> we are talking about job creation. >> eric: wait a minute, julie. >> the president doesn't have a plan. he is triing to say, let's stay the course. if you want to tout mediocrity in a stagnant economy, that's fine. the voters know we can do better. and mitt romney is saying, unlike the president, particularly with obamacare, i am principled but practical and i want to work across party lines because if we don't work across party lines, we are not going to fix america's problems. you are proposing more of the same. >> i don't know if you lived in massachusetts. diwhen mitt romney was running i. i worked for the massachusetts state senate -- >> i will tell you this. first of al

game. i would say there was a lot of talk before the debate that mitt romney, his -- the chances in the race were slipping away so a lot of republican donors were looking at moving to congressional races and wanted to think about the senate and house races as a way to save runs, if you will, because they thought romney's chance mrs. over t shows he's back in the game. >> the vice presidential debate, a lot of people who werethis on the fence have been telling me that they got the specifics that they wanted from the romney campaign this week with respect to jobs and an economic plan, healthcare and a lot of other domestic issues. now we switch to domestic and foreign policy. ryan is a numbers guy. how do you think he'll match up to vice president biden when it comes to the economy first, foreign policy second? >> i think it will be an even match. biden was in the senate 36 years so he has a very good understanding of federal issues as well. but paul ryan jokes about how he's been reading federal budgets since he was 22 years old. so they both have a very long backlog of data they can

perhaps he can turn the tide. right now the momentum seems to be romney's favor. >> let's talk specifically about battleground states, wisconsin, pennsylvania, new hampshire and michigan were all leading in obama and now considered toss-ups. let's start with wisconsin. what is happening there? >> all those four states as you said were switched by real clear politics. in wisconsin that is where paul ryan is from, mitt romney's running mate. that is only a 2-point race in wisconsin. you have to remember, this is state where back in june there was recall election against scott walker. he won the race. he demoralized the democrats. a lot of activists were saying because president obama didn't come strong in favor of the democratic candidate, it demoralized a lot of democrats there. turnout could be very important. if the democratic turnout is not high, you might see mitt romney win that state. >> patti ann: meanwhile, florida where he is romney is enjoying a 2% advantage. we have david plouffe saying, we are going to get the senior citizens and hispanics. we are going to get florid

. he couldn't defend his record. >> shannon: he continuously talked about a plan that governor romney has that would in their estimation, lead to a $5 trillion deficit, they are citing outside besides for that number. and romney says it will be compensated for by loopholes. how he will justify the cuts? where will those revenue sources be made up? >> even stephanie cutter admitted it is not a $5 trillion tax cut. we have a 20% tax cut across the board, no matter what income level you fall into. but for those people at the higher levels of income, what governor rom no is proposing is closing loopholes and dedux for those individuals that will ultimately make the entire budget revenue neutral. >> shannon: when will we find out what they are? >> when a budget is put together, when the budget committee puts forward a budget, they don't put forward a budget with every loophole and deduction and every single -- they have a couple of numbers, they say here's the top number, here's the bottom number. you go to the ways & means committee and i sit down with a burch of people and i figur

enjoyed it. i was talking about florida a moment ago and the "miami herald" poll shows romney with a seven-point lead. but in ohio, this is interesting, the president had a substantial lead there. now look at it, in the margin of error. about only line, florida, north carolina, lesser extent, virginia, are all going for governor romney. governor romney can win those states and the president will be re-elected if he holds ohio. ohio now is the key if the race freezes. >>gregg: and the real clear politics electoral map, this is what really counts you have to win the state and win the electoral votes. talk to us about this. >>pat: what is happening, look at yellow, ladies and gentleman. we see, now, that wisconsin, michigan, which everyone thought was in solid for obama is now undecided, so is pennsylvania. maine has moved to leaning. wisconsin is a battleground state. shear my theory. we are seeing faster movement in states that had no add veer tieing and have been left aside. that means the problem with ohio could be this $49 million spent by obama. and how early the obama ground orga

audience. >> but they obviously will have talking points and things they want to fit into an answer and i wonder how much fact correction you would expect from governor romney and president obama based on the vice presidential debate and questions about getting any facts wrong? >> absolutely. you will see interaction. they'll try to fact check each other much like when biden interjected, facts matter. i don't think we'll see something as loud as that but they'll spar trying to say facts here and there and also the campaign aides themself, i see them in my in-box, the emails spew in, fact checking the other campaign constantly over the course of the debate. >> i'm personally a happyoholic. i wake up smiling, but it has to be appropriate. you can't smile when talking about things that are not smiling matters. if i read a libya story, i have sadness in my heart. was vice president biden's smiling and snickering appropriate and effective? do you expect president obama will come out with a big grin? >> i don't think president obama will come out like a big grin. joe biden was joe biden.
